Storm rocks N.C. Zoo


ASHEBORO – The N.C. Zoo is closed Friday due to damage from storms yesterday.  Workers are assessing the number of downed trees and branches after the afternoon’s high winds damaged displays and knocked trees into pathways.

Some employees said they had never seen such damage here, but no zoo animals were hurt. There’s been no word yet on whether it will be open this weekend. August is traditionally one of the busiest months for the zoo.
